Today I will be arguing for gun control.
Guns are a major killer in the United States. Over 30,000 die in gun related deaths every year, and an additional 84,000 were injured due to guns. Too many dangerous criminals are getting their hands on these weapons. We need to increase security and make it more difficult for people to own guns that can be used to kill.

I am arguing against the Gun Control laws that are currently pending in government. Guns are a POSSIBLE cause of death, but a lot of people die of drinking alcohol, or drug overdoses. In fact, one woman even died of water poisoning! Would you ban guns for killing people when water can do the same thing?

Oh dear. Your argument revolves around the fact that someone somewhere has died of water poisoning. We literally can not survive without water. Guns, we can live without. I'm not for gun free zones, as that is where many shootings occur. We must regulate guns, however, to keep them out of the hands of criminals. The Brady Bill, which requires a background check before you can purchase a gun, as well as a waiting period, must be supported. Guns can be held by Americans, but not before that American has been checked to make sure they have a crystal clear criminal record so that they can not harm others. We must also close the Charleston loophole, which allows people to receive guns after three days of background checking which comes back with no evidence. Because of this loophole, 9 were killed in a Charleston church by a man who was a dangerous felon. On average, this loophole puts 3,490 guns in the hands of criminals and the mentally ill, each year.
What we must do is increase background checks and not give people guns until every report on that person has been done. This will not only improve our security, but also protect those who could come in contact with these gun-buyers in the future.

@ConservativeDemocrat Exactly. Guns need to be watched more closely

Water isn't designed for killing, guns are. Plus, we need water, not guns. And it isn't our choice to get shot, it is our choice to drink water. So regulate guns.
